Oliver Twisting

Multiple friends and acquaintances promptly sent this pretty good piece John Oliver did "exposing" the media exploitation of scientific studies. Whilst entertaining, the irony is that to do this piece, Oliver's team had to cherry pick the data itself. For example, how frequently did media outlets report the studies accurately as opposed to exploit it for the benefit of the story?

And let's not forget Oliver's own fast and loose interpretation of science (and "scientists") to forward the requisite controversy in a story.
